to that, as we will negotiate as you know the interest rate environment is pretty low when it is low, and we know when we go to the markets today we will not have any cash flow issues, the interest will range from three to four percent. but because we don't have... we don't intend to issue until 2017, we have used an assume rate of 6 percent. and in doing that, we will realize in circumstances where we will have the deficits where the general fund will have additional dollars. so we are proposing that in the event that occurs, that if we continue to collect the revenue more than we need for that service, we would fund that med assessments will repay the city for those deficits. the next one is the stabilization fund, we know which hotel and revenues that are volatile, so the city negotiater will travel that will fund a stablization fund for future losses in all losses in revenues. and the amounts of $15 million and the goal is that as we move that portion of that $15 million it gets replenished and so it will be maintained through the term of the cod. in addition, as you know, the te

difficult particularly in the middle of a very unstable environment such as the u.s. fiscal cliff and the european debt crisis. china's government needs a very stable export sector as it would take some time before the domestic consumption can be built up to a fully -- a full capacity that can substitute the export sector as one of the main engines of the economic growth. >> reporter: meanwhile, china has been boosting economic ties with countries in east and southeast asia and the policy seems to be unchanged. >> i think both east asia and southeast asia are important economic partners with china. given the economic problems in the u.s. and europe, china would be interested to promote more free trade within this economic bloc because china can out source at lower value for example in vietnam, cambodia, etcetera, so china can move up the chain by adding values to these products and then sell these products to richer neighbors such as japan and south korea. >> many chinese people are staying away from japan because of a bilateral territorial dispute. the number of chinese visitors
that now, five years is a very, very long time in this environment. >> rose: will they in the next five years be able to move this from the sort of exporting economy model to a domestic demand model? >> i mean, the distinction between reformers and conservatives is a bit of an artifice, everyone that is meangful in cna ttuns the country knows that they have to shift and trance form the economy, but the fact that someone is in favor of reform does not mean they are in favor of free market reform. so clearly there is going to be a lot of interest in redistributing wealth and whether or not they can move on that is an open question. but trying to ensure that folks, more people get into the middle classes, there is less dissent and less dissatisfaction with their lot in life as growth in china slows. >> rose: can the communist party as it exists today in its closed way, how long does it have? >> i have an answer for that. as i think i have discussed with you before, charlie, one of the main impressions to me of living in china opposite things are always true, it is wonderful and horrible an

damage was being done to the environment than in fact was really occurring. acknowledging those lies, b.p. has agreed to plead guilty to felony obstruction of congress. make no mistake. while the company is guilty, individuals committed these crimes. and we have also unsealed today a 23 count indictment charging b.p.'s two highest ranking supervisors aboard the deep water horizon with manslaughter and violation of the clean water act. the indictment charges the two b.p. well site leaders with negligent and gross negligence on 2010. the red flags indicating that the well was not secure both men failed to take appropriate action to prevent the blow out. a separate indictment was also unsealed today charging a former senior b.p. expect sive with obstruction of a investigation and making false statements to law enforcement officials. the indictment alleges that he on behalf of b.p. intentionally under estimated the amount of oil flowing from the well. he allegedly cherry picked pages from documents, with held other documents al together and lied to congress and others to make this spill app
